IFA Ireland XI - 1950 British Home Championship

Football - 1950 British Home Championship - Wales 0 IFA Ireland XI 0
The Ireland Team Group before the game at the Racecourse Ground, Wrexham.
Back (left to right): N. Lockhart (Coventry), Danny Blanchflower (Barnsley), H. Kelly (Fulham), G. Bowler (Hull City), S. Smyth (Wolves), Reg Ryan (West Brom).
Front: J. McKenna (Huddersfield), R. Brennan (Birmingham), Con Martin (Aston Villa; captain), Tom Aherne (Luton Town), Davy Walsh (West Brom).
The game was the last time the Belfast-based IFA fielded an all-Ireland team. The team included four players - Tom Aherne, Reg Ryan, Davy Walsh and the captain, Con Martin - who were born in what is now the Republic of Ireland. Since this game was also a qualifier for the 1950 FIFA World Cup, the situation led to controversy. All four players had previously played for the Dublin-based FAI XI in their qualifiers. As a result the four players actually played for two different associations in the same FIFA World Cup tournament.
FIFA intervened, after complaints from the FAI, and subsequently restricted players eligibility based on the political border
